Growing up in another country I heard a similar quote, but it was more to the point.... it was something like...

"When a society approves barbaric ways to deal with 'bad people', that society becomes barbaric itself"

This reminds me of the coolest license plate I've ever seen (in Kansas City)
I bet <HillCountryHotRodMan> is going to love it, too.

Sorry for being a freaking nerd... (at least I'm good in many sports )

My thought of the day:
"If you are afraid to drive on the highway when the road is wet/humid and you want to drive 40MPH to feel safe on the highway...
GET THE #$%@# off the left lane"

3 cars were taking about 1/2 mile of the left lane on I-35 (coming from the NE) this morning because the road was humid.

You guys around 1604 and Stone Oak area think you have traffic problems?? Try driving down Broadway starting at the high School down towards Cambridge during morning rush hour! Construction on Brodaway closed off two lanes on both sides (this has been going on for a while,) so I came up with this brilliant idea to go north on New Braunsfels St and BAM!! Construction on New Braunsfels and Eisenhauer, down to two lanes. With all this construction in the area, now it takes me 15 minutes to get to work... Why do construction on the two major streets in the area a block abart at the same time??
Total insanity!!!

I tried a binary decoder and it wouldn't tell me what it means >_>

I did begin writing a poem that day about 'decoding my love in binary' but tossed it because it was rubbish ^_^

I was going for something like these lyrics, you will like it if you are nerdy.



You make me want to measure stars in the backyard with a calculator and a ruler baby ~

lol well now you made it easy to understand

and thus the difference between a nerd (like yourself) and a geek (like me)

and it is bugging me that I cannot find a decoder that works, either for the whole sequence, or chunks of it, you figured it out with pen and paper I bet >_<
